ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
Aerospace Nuclear Science & Technology
Organized to promote the advancement of knowledge in the use of nuclear science and technologies in the aerospace application. Specialized nuclear-based technologies and applications are needed to advance the state-of-the-art in aerospace design, engineering and operations to explore planetary bodies in our solar system and beyond, plus enhance the safety of air travel, especially high speed air travel. Areas of interest will include but are not limited to the creation of nuclear-based power and propulsion systems, multifunctional materials to protect humans and electronic components from atmospheric, space, and nuclear power system radiation, human factor strategies for the safety and reliable operation of nuclear power and propulsion plants by non-specialized personnel and more.

Radioactive waste management programs worldwide are becoming increasingly comprehensive culminating in a final disposal of the radioactive waste. The maturation of various of the activities leading to such radioactive waste management allows nowadays to address the questions on how to optimize the overall process towards a performant radioactive waste management.
Pre-disposal management is hereby key given that it encompasses not only a long time-span between generation of the materials that may become, later-on, totally or partly declared as radioactive waste as well as presenting multiple synergies between various materials/waste process. It is also increasingly allowing for optimization in view of multiple criteria as there are environmental, technical, safety/security/safeguards, regulatory, socio-political, and economic.
This panel session will present key elements for such holistic pre-disposal management as essential and strategic domain to optimize the sustainability performance of nuclear energy.
These elements will be addressed by three international experts on these matters, i.e.:
• Rebecca Tadesse (OECD-NEA)
• Anders Sjöland (SKB, Sweden)
• Cécile Evans (ORANO, France)
Luc Van Den Durpel (Nuclear-21) will moderate this panel-session with Christian Leggett co-chairing.
